Emily Nordvang

Emily is a freelance science writer with a passion for creating clear, compelling science content. She holds a first class honours degree in Chemistry from Durham University and a PhD from the Technical University of Denmark.

After escaping the laboratory, Emily worked as a Technology Scout, a position that saw her travelling the globe to learn about new developments in catalysis and materials science. She then worked as a Medical Writer before making the leap to science writing in 2017.

As a freelancer, Emily specialises in biotechnology, materials, and analytical science, a combination of subjects that has seen her write about everything from targeted drug- delivery to concrete. Emily is an all-rounder who is never afraid to tackle a new topic.

In her downtime, Emily can often be found exploring the Shropshire countryside with her two beautiful daughters, husband and slightly bonkers Rhodesian ridgeback.
